LibriVox recording of Notes from the Underground, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Read by Librivox volunteers. Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s short masterpiece about a ranting, slightly mad civil servant. The stylistic inventiveness, and the insights into the absurdities and weakness of humans seem so fresh and incisive today that if published now (a century and a half later) Notes would be considered an avant-garde post-modernist triumph. In some ways this is a heavy text, laden with conversational...

LibriVox recording of Madame Bovary , by Gustave Flaubert. Published in book form in April 1857, the novel focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns. Flaubert was notoriously perfectionist about his writing and claimed to always be searching for le mot juste...

We get the tale through a classic unreliable narrator, relating as Marlow, a ship's captain, tells how he was sent by the...
